Revision as of 01:12, January 19, 2012

Hybrid races[1], hybrid creatures or hybrids[2][3] are creatures that resemble two different species (though sometimes more) put together.[1] Azeroth has many of such races.[1] While all half-breeds are hybrids, it is unlikely that most hybrid races formed through the coupling of their parent races. Half-breed races are true hybrid races.

The magnataur are considered unique among the hybrid races for many reasons, including their large size. While they obviously resemble centaur, dryads and other hybrid races, they do not appear to be descendants of Cenarius.[1]

Compare with demi-human and near-human.
